About

I am a graduate from Marywood University with a BFA in Illustration. I love simple yet elegant design with a dash of whimsy. My preferred medium is pen and ink, but I also enjoy pastel and digital painting in Photoshop. I am inspired by nature, the children I have nannied for in the summers, and my grandmother’s zany creativity. The illustration greats Beatrix Potter, E H Shepard, and Quentin Blake have also heavily influenced my work. Besides making art I love reading in a cozy chair, learning languages, and traveling.
